"My interest in the Technique grew after injuring my knee in a Yoga class. The exercises and treatments I was getting helped ease the pain, but I wasn't sure that they would prevent me from getting injured again. As an active dancer and choreographer I was looking for knowledge that would allow me to continue working safely. Through the Alexander Technique I learned to identify the movement patterns that weakened and strained my knee, and gained confidence in my ability to perform fully and safely. In the process I fell in love with the practice; finding the ability to recognize and avoid unconscious habits enriched both my professional and personal life."
